Feature Fffflower

ANYTHING GOES at the Crafters Cafe this fortnight.  Check out the inspirations from the DT and enter yourself, here: crafterscafechallenge

This one uses the bleaching and colouring technique.  I forget where I learned this, probably youtube.  It's also great for using up those snippets and tiny bits of leftover card.

First stamp and heat emboss onto coloured card.  I used clear EP.  Then use diluted bleach on a paintbrush to take some of the colour out (kind of reverse colouring).  Then, when dry, I used pencils to shade where I wanted more colour, and because I used textured card, I got a lovely effect with the pencils.  Cut out and add to background.  The background uses the same stamp.
